EARLY WITHDRAWAL WITH CREDIT
A student withdrawing from school will not be given credit if withdrawal is before the end of the semester/year. A withdrawal grade is given and the student is expected to enroll in another school. Exceptions may be made at the end of the school year. Generally the DOE regulations allow for early withdrawal with credit if the withdrawal is within the last three weeks of school. Reason for early withdrawal must be given to the principal. In the case of military transfers, a copy of the MAC Transportation computer verification of departure date of Permanent Change of Station (PCS) must be submitted in addition to a copy of the student’s plane ticket. For additional details, contact the Registrar’s Office in room 111.
TRANSFER TO ANOTHER SCHOOL DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR
A student withdrawing from school must inform the Registrar's Office at least 1 week prior to the date of departure so that a release form may be processed in time. Request to have a student released must be made in writing (Request for Release forms are available in the Registrar's Office) by a parent or guardian. The withdrawing student is given a clearance form by the registrar. The form must be signed by each of the student's teachers, the librarian, counselor, vice-principal, athletic director, account clerk, attendance clerk and health aide. All books must be returned and financial obligations met. The student is released as soon as the process is completed.
